cover ART

Sacrilege were the band that helped define a new genre of music melding fast paced angry punk sounds with a heavier metallic blitzkreig. One of the first cross over bands of the 80's that later influenced so many others, i am proud to have been part of this scene and prouder to have been able to produce the art for their debut 12" It wasn't originally done in colour then mono-toned, I did this in water based paint using only black. Turned it to negative using film then using freehand and letraset made a knock-out for the text. This was 1984-85

found this clip on the internet - an old friend of mine back in Sydney, Jane displaying her punk jacket that i painted around 1981. On these i used shoe repair paint, these were bought from shoe shops in tiny bottles and spray cans, but on leather jackets lasted forever!!
it can be seen at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum in a display of tribal culture!


painting 4 (oct 2011) 18" X 14" - two Tiki's and a Mayan temple! the largest i've done so far and quite stunning!! very colourful.

my favourite the third work (july 2011) 'three masks'.
16" X 12"
Though Tiki, i think it has an African feel, will be doing a bigger version of this later.
